What is Computer Science Networking?
The Computer Science Networking major is designed to give students the critical thinking and technical skills needed for designing, building, managing, and securing computer networks across all industries that will keep people connected and information flowing. Students will acquire a foundation in LAN, WAN, and mobile networks as well as the cybersecurity knowledge to secure these networks.
What makes Walsh's Computer Science Networking major unique?

In addition, students have the option to enroll in Walsh's new 4+1 Program for non-business majors who would like to supplement their bachelor's degree with an MBA. Through the program, students simultaneously earn undergraduate and graduate credit for Walsh's MBA Prep Series courses, saving both time and money as students pursue their advanced degree.
